    I thought it would be interesting to post a thread where we could track the highest production VIN seen.

    I'm not sure if this is authoritative but this is supposedly how to tell production vs release candidate VINs:

      I wasn't sure. Sources/references or pictures would be great.

          The above mentioned way to tell the difference between RC and production is the VIN check digit, which is a calculated quantity. I don't think that will work.

            I would also love to know if the RCs are still being driven very far outside of the Fremont region. I drive through Cincinnati a couple of times a month on my way to Pittsburgh and the Tesla Store is a quick shot off the freeway. I always drive through the lot 'just hoping'; especially since it was reported there were 100 units sent to Ohio for crash testing. So far, I've never spotted one. I'll be going that way tomorrow and back through on Friday. My camera is already 'at the ready'...

              The white Model 3 with the white interior spotted a couple of days ago is VIN #75. That's a production car for sure.

              Tesla is still churning out cars, don't worry!

                I guess employees are getting options that the rest of us won't, at least for a while.:(:mad: Or, do you think (or know) that it will be available for us early reservationists in CA? :)

                  Great idea for a thread, @teslaliving !

                  I'm hoping to spot a high VIN very soon, number about 130,000...in my driveway. :D

                              Thanks for posting. I say we do a countdown to the model 3 deliveries for Canada. I assume that they begin producing the Canadian cars at the 200,000th unit. That would make 199,896 to go! Someone pls make a countdown display.

                                FWIW employees do not see white interior as an option. I suspect that was a special order from a big investor along the lines of Jurvetson et al.
